Matt Frei on Berlin

Matt Frei, the former Southern Europe correspondent for the BBC, has penned an interesting article on Berlin's past and present architecture in his online 'Washington Diary'. In it, he reflects on the architectural legacy of the Nazis, the impact of Cold War competition on the built form of the city, and its post-Unification rebirth. Frei also mentions that he has been filming a documentary series on Berlin, which will be worth looking out for.
